series of recent attacks in the recent news cycle has served as high-profile reminders of the danger that weaponized chemicals pose to their intended targets. But the reality which is not as frequently reported is that non-targets in the vicinity of weaponized chemicals at the time of deployment as well as identification and cleanup workers often fall prey to the same effects that the hazardous material inflicts upon its intended victim.
We still aren’t at a stage where the safe identification of hazardous chemical agents is a guarantee – far from it. But U.S. intelligence agencies, and likely other intelligence agencies spanning the globe have been seeking a solution that would allow for the detection and recognition of specific dangerous chemicals from a distance of up to 30 meters, or nearly 100 feet.
